    Default radars in NY

    anyone know what the popular radars in NY are, also is X still used in NY. Also is laser heavily used in NY?

    I think for people who know a lot about radars in their area (not me lol) should just post what popular confirmed guns have have encountered in their time owning a RD that way noobs like me can learn what to watch out for in their area =)

    Yes it is a little weak to search here. I sometimes search with google:

    just search using: some key words site:radardetector.net

    Also, you should post stuff like this in the local section.

    K band, Ka band and laser. I believe they still do an occasional air patrol (vascar) as well. Airmoore????

    We also have X & POP. Airborn (VASCAR) is not used anymore. NYSP aviation were the only ones doing it to my knowledge. They stopped about 6 years ago, it go to by too much of a pain for them. Aviation doesn't only work with us, they work with a multitude of other state agencies, so they are always busy with something else. That's not to say it will never again be the case, but it is very unlikely.

    NY946:
    I'm often in Rockland on the Palisades Parkway (which is a huge speed trap IMO) or I-87. What kind of radar does the NYSP use in that area? Thank goodness for my veteran tags, otherwise I'd be toast quite a few times. -RKS

    I travel that road quite a bit. The leo's use Ka band, K band and laser. They are also very good at sneaking up your 6 and pacing you. Yes, it is a bit of a speed trap!

    NYSP employs Laser, Ka, and POP statewide.
